Vascular Surgery Q & A

What is vascular surgery?

Vascular surgery refers to any procedure that involves an artery or vein. The vascular surgeons at Coastal Vascular Center trained for years so they can manage any condition that affects your arteries and veins both medically and surgically. When you come in for care, the team works closely with you to develop a plan that provides the most benefits. 

What are common vascular surgeries?

The experienced team at Coastal Vascular Center performs numerous vascular surgeries. Some of the most common include:

Angioplasty and stenting

Angioplasty and stenting are procedures aimed at opening narrowed blood vessels to improve blood flow. The team may recommend this procedure if you have a history of peripheral artery disease or cerebrovascular disease.

Aneurysm repair

To prevent the rupturing of an aneurysm, the team at Coastal Vascular Center may suggest aneurysm repair. In many cases, the repair of the weakened blood vessel can be done using a minimally invasive approach referred to as endovascular surgery. 

For improved care, Coastal Vascular Center offers the Zenith® fenestrated stent graft (ZFEN) to address complex infrarenal aortic aneurysms.

Carotid endarterectomy

A carotid endarterectomy is a procedure aimed at restoring blood flow to the brain when blocked by the buildup of plaque. 

The team at Coastal Vascular Center offers some of the most advanced techniques for this procedure, including transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR), which redirects blood flow during the procedure to reduce the risk of plaque fragments from reaching your brain. 

Dialysis access

The experienced vascular surgeons also perform dialysis access surgery, which involves placement of a catheter that allows blood to flow out of your body to the dialysis machine for removal of waste and fluids, and then back into your body. 

The experienced vascular team offers endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy as an alternative to surgery for the treatment of varicose and spider veins. The team performs these procedures at the office.

Your vascular specialist at Coastal Vascular Center talks to you about your procedure beforehand, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

Will I need vascular surgery?

Your specialist at Coastal Vascular Center determines if you need vascular surgery during a consultation. In most cases, conservative treatments are recommended first before surgery, such as lifestyle changes and medication. Only when you fail to get improvement from conservative treatments is surgery recommended.
